When you purchase a laptop built specifically for gaming, there are a few sacrifices your need to keep in mind. Chief among them is portability, as something beefy enough to handle any modern game is going to be rather significant in both size and weight. Today, MSI looks to change that, with the announcement of their GS60 Ghost and GS70 Stealth lines of gaming laptops.

The GS60 Ghost and GS70 Stealth are ultraslim laptops sporting a 15″ and 17″ screen respectively. Within them both lies an NVIDIA GeForce GTX mobile GPU, with the bigger beast getting the 870M and the slightly smaller beast getting the 860M.

The new MSI laptops also come stuffed full of RAM, booting off SSDs and complementing your storage needs with cavernous mechanical secondary hard drives. This collection of hardware rests on an Mg-Li alloy chassis finished externally with brushed aluminium. Basically you don’t want to let the thin profile of these laptops fool you; they are built for serious gamers in need of a powerful portable solution.


Both MSI laptops are available now. The MSRP, as well as more details, can be found in the press release below. Keep an eye on Futurelooks as we may have one of these for review in the future.
